Abstract: Roughly 9 months after the end of the 5-year transient search in
the Dark Energy Survey (DES), DES submitted a series of papers
describing its first cosmology results based on measuring cosmic
distances for a small fraction of the Type Ia Supernova sample.
I will give an overview of DES, our first results, and the analysis, highlighting where we have made improvements necessary to reduce uncertainties. I will also briefly describe future prospects for SN Ia cosmology with DES (full sample) and the WFIRST space mission.
